[chorus]:
It doesn't take your eyes to see
What the pain won't take away
When they take that fear away
We're just caught up in the mass confusion
Confused by the grand illusion
They're never gonna let you see it
'Cause if they did, we'd all be free, yeah
We're just caught up in the mass confusion
Confused by the grand illusion

[verse 1]
We were told that the hell below was a fiery inferno
I rediscovered my soul between the lines inside my journal
Trapped in a Penn. St.of mind Jo Paterno
External gratification is not happiness eternal
Interject, intellect, intercept, internet
A slave majority where 5% benefit
PhotoShop amateurs, retouched photography
Pornography, sodomy, child labour economy
Put away your hope, same political policies
2010 only minus the Space Odyssey
it's gotta be a better way, we pray to hit the lottery
We all need a the-rapist...
For the robbery of our God and official public apology
An angel plotted to have Organized Konfusion
You fell for the delusion, I'll expose the movement
Illusion...

[chorus]

[verse 2]
Professional analyst, rhetoric, rambling
Symbicort, Advair, Albuterol, Ambien
I change the channel on commercials when I'm channeling
Everybody's a star, lights, cameras
17,000 times a day the human eye blinks
Making us even more subjectable to the hijinks
iPhone, iChat, who gives a fuck what iThink?
One world currency, doesn't matter where I bank
There is no pot of gold at the end of a mythical rainbow
We're uneducated contestants, life is the game show
Your leader is the host, the results are painful
The judges weave a web in which we all get tangled
Their only contribution to the world is a delusion
Which has no physical power, I offer you a solution
Pharoahe Monch the antonym for translucent
Lyrical revolution, I'll expose the movement
Illusion...

[chorus]
